Local media reported that Lille paid two million euros for the 24-year-old Kjaer, who has won 35 caps for his country.

He joined Wolfsburg from Italian side Palermo for 12 million euros in 2010.

"It is obvious that joining such a club can only be a good idea," Kjaer said in a statement released by the 2011 French champions, who finished sixth last season.

Kjaer, who spent the 2011-12 season on loan at AS Roma, will replace Cameroon's Aurelien Chedjou, who has signed for Turkish club Galatasaray.
